Friends of the circus

Friends of the Circus is a Not For Profit organisation based in Byron Bay that works in collaboration with Circus Arts to provide training, production and performance opportunities for youth in the Northern Rivers.  

Circus Arts helps FOTC provide performance opportunities at the Term Showcases and community events and festivals.  Circus Arts also helps FOTC fundraise via raffles and other events throughout the year.  Money raised goes towards purchasing equipment to advance the training of our circus students and production crew.

The FOTC Committee is comprised of parents and friends of Circus Arts and they are always open to more helping hands!  If you would like to be involved in Friends of the Circus, please contact Circus Arts Byron Bay on 02 6685 6566.

FOTC have performed at Bluesfest, Woodford Folk Festival, Splendour in the Grass, Bangalow Billycart Derby, Kites & Bikes, Sample Food Festival, Mullum Music Festival and much more!

All Abilities

Circus celebrates the differences in everyone and Circus Arts is proud to offer classes and activities for participants of all abilities.

Partaking in Circus Arts activities allows participants to enjoy a new level of independence and community engagement whilst also challenging their own personal boundaries and perceived limitations.

Circus Arts staff are trained in teaching participants of varying ability levels and all of our venues have wheelchair access.  The Byron Bay location also has auto-belays on the climbing wall so carers can assist participants while climbing or allow them to climb independently without a carer actively required.

Please let our staff know if you or your group require any special attention from our already very attentive staff!
